tv   Today in the Bay  NBC  July 17, 2012 6:00am-7:00am PDT

6:00 am
i'll give you the latest. >> a live look outside, a little hazy at the golden gate bridge but always a beautiful shot. it is tuesday, july 17th, this is "today in the bay." >> good tuesday morning. the time is 6:01. i'm jon kelley. >> i'm laura garcia-cannon. our top story from google to yahoo! chief. it's a runner-up in silicon valley. marissa mayer is tapped to become yahoo!'s fifth ceo in five years. we have team coverage. bob is live outside google. and scott mcgrew is live in sunnyvale with a look at what is next with mayer at the helm. >> good morning to you. one of the questions is can marissa mayer be a success here at yahoo!. yahoo! is not a failed company, it's just not a very interesting
6:01 am
company lately, not compared to, say, apple or facebook or google or twitter. so already she's generated interest in what's going on at yahoo!. a lot of excitement and she hasn't even shown up here on first avenue in sunnyvale yet. keep in mind mayer has never run an entire company but helped make google what it is today and brings some geek credibility to a company that needs to attract first rate employees. that's the really exciting thing. not only is she going to work on products like she did at google, but she's going to attract employees. there are two things that a company has to do, it has to create something that people want, but also in silicon valley it has to attract a-list players and a lot of people believe that she can do that. yaho yahoo!'s gain is google's loss. bob is at google. what effect do you think it's going to have on google? >> reporter: good morning.
6:02 am
one could make the argument that google is so big that even someone like marissa mayer leaving isn't going to have much impact. as you and i were talking off camera, you look at google as an oil tanker. take a lot to get that off course. all of this is yet to be seen. she did make her mark here as google's 20th employee, first female engineer, she is and has been very charismatic, considered one of the few public faces of the tech giant. any one who has used google online, pretty much the entire universe will recognize mayer is the one who helped design the home page, the gmail in box and google images. mayer resigned her post by phone yesterday afternoon, some people might have seen this coming, the fact she was going to be leaving. last year google reorganized her unit promoting another employee over her. the ceo larry page keeping her
6:03 am
out of the senior leadership team. the new york times suggesting that might have been enough for her to consider a move. in e-mail to bloomberg, her former boss, eric schmidt wrote, quote, yahoo! made a good choice and i'm personally excite to see another woman become ceo of a technology company. unquote. mayer surprised people with a second announcement. she tweeted in the afternoon that she and her husband are expecting a baby boy come this october. reporting live in mountain view, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> she will be a busy woman with mayer accepting the position that now means a record number of 20 fortune 500 companies are run by women. 10 years ago that was seven. we'll have more on the new developments throughout the morning. >> a prominent lafayette couple is dead following a small plane crash in utah. local director of the bank of commerce peter branaugh and his
6:04 am
wife were flying to aspen. the couple crashed in a canyon near the utah/colorado border. a private helicopter found the debris. the children released this statement. in part it reads they were a special presence with their compassion, joyfulness and generosity. the niece is nicole the olympic beach volley ballplayer from orinda who competed in the beijing games. the cause of the crash is under investigation. >> a political power couple is splitting up. court papers filed cite irreconcilable differences. their troubled marriage made headlines in february after nadia admitted to having both an affair and a drug addiction. she later resigned from the alameda board of supervisors. >> some giant fans are not too happy so paying more to see their beloved giants.
6:05 am
more parking meters coming to the streets around the ball yard and guess what, they will soon cost even more. christie smith is live near at&t park with the city's new money making strategy. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, jon. you get your beer, peanuts, hot dogs, now think about paying more to park at least if you park on the streets game day around at&t park. the meters are going to be going up. what amounts to about 5 to $7 an hour. to park on the street. depending on how close you are to the park on game day for a special event. this according to the chronicle. the agency will also add hundreds of new meters in the missions bay development around the park. and by next spring the meter hours will get longer, running until 10:00 p.m., seven days a week. aparentsly they can make adjustments depending on what's going on around here. but the idea is to reduce
6:06 am
gridlock around game day, get people out of their cars and on public transportation. in some cases there will be no time limit if the meter is fed. that could run bu $30 on the street or $40 to park 18 private lot. either way it's not cheap. this has drawn mixed reviews from neighbors who don't want the gridlock but would like a break on the pricey meters on the streets. christie smith, "today in the bay." >> thank you very much. not great news if you're going to the ball game. >> pretty good if you like a cooler forecast. i want to check win meteorologist christina loren. >> good morning to you. we told you the fog was going to roll in. three-hour flight delays because of this thick cloud bank. we told you it was coming. we can still see alcatraz. look at that. beautiful start this morning as
6:07 am
the ship sails in. visibility is pretty good at the surface. that's going to change. between 6:00 and 8:00, that's when we expect -- that's our window for the thickest fog. but after that time, the sun will break through a mix of sun and clouds, 59 unsan jose. 64 comfortable conditions today bay side and chilly at the coast, gray day there, but you'll hit about 64. much warmer on the seven day forecast. first here is mike. >> we have better news already. before i reported the accident, this is northbound 101. right around montague expressway, an accident just cleared so that is no longer an issue. no slowing but you do have slowing where i have circled passing alum rock avenue, 40s and 30s, the volume picking up.
6:08 am
north of tully road. a live look shows you what things are like as far as the sensors for livermore. here the cash lanes are starting to show a slowdown. no metering lights yet but we're 5 or 10 minutes out from that. the volume, a nice easy drive. on the low clouds t fog that could affect your drive coming up. back to you. >> we'll check back with you. 6:09. you could call it a lose-lose situation for taxpayers or college students. today the csu board of trustees will have to make tough choices regarding higher tuition or higher taxes. marla tellez is here to explain. good morning. >> this all comes down to the voting booth if voters reject governor brown's tax probably the university system will be out of $250 million as soon as the end of this year. so the csu board has a big meeting in long beach to plan
6:09 am
for the proverbial rainy day. it's debating the option to raise tuition by 5%, that's $150 per semester. but for out of state students tuition would rise 9%. employee pay and benefits would be cut 2.5%. the second plan is cut enro enrollment by 6,000 students. fewer students means fewer faculty and staff so about 7 employees would be let go. pay and benefits would drop by 5%. as you can tell the board is deciding between the lesser of two evils. this is if voter s don't vote t increase taxes. if it happens the cuts hit the system in the new year. this meeting gets under way at 9:00 this morning. >> thank you very much for that
6:10 am
information. 6:10. coming up on "today in the bay." >> catch her. that's all i could say. let me catch the baby. >> an unbelievable scene. a man catching a girl falling from a third floor window. this amazing video coming up. >> plus t the president and first lady, boy, they were caught on that kiss cam. why it took a second take to get the crowd what they wanted.

6:13 am
warm-up coming too. >> all snuggled in. >> no kidding. in brooklyn, new york, boy, they certainly have a hero. >> they do. this is one of those you got to see it to believe it. a 52-year-old bus driver was coming home from work when he saw a 7-year-old girl on an air conditionaler on a third story window. wow. that is mind blowing. steven st. bernard, he caught the girl. you can see the girl there, they wanted to try to get her to go back inside. she falls off. but he, there, that man was there to catch her and save her. >> i was holding her, rubbing her and she just more or less kept looking around. she didn't lose consciousness. >> truly a big time hero. st. bernard, you can see the sling, he tore a tendon in his
6:14 am
shoulder. the girl, she is autistic, her mom happened to be in the apartment watching her other child. didn't see her daughter go out on the air conditioner. the girl, she fell three stories, only suffering minor injuries. >> right time, right place on that one. at least two are dead, 19 injured including an infant after a shooting at a matter in toronto. police say about 100 people were in the streets when gun fire erupted. they took a man they call a person of interest into custody. toronto's police chief says this is the worst shooting he has seen in 35 years on the force. >> police in tuscaloosa, alabama looking into the shootings of 17 people at a bar. police do not have a suspect this morning. >> the u.s. government confirming a navy ship fired on an indian fishing boat off dubai killing a man on board. the crew of the supply ship said

they fear add terrorist attack and warned the fishing boat several times. the u.s. ambassador to india called the foreign secretary to express regrets over this death. >> the fbi is looking into discovery of sewing needles in sandwiches on separate delta airline flights. passengers found two in their turkey sandwiches on a flight from amsterdam to the united states. the crew was told to check other flights and two more needles were found. frightening there. >> switching gears, you hear the music. it's only 10 days until the opening ceremonies in london of the olympics. >> i'm so ready. >> about time. >> some members of team usa took the scenic route to the olympic village. >> right. the really, really scenic route. we have video of the athletes arriving at the airport yesterday, they later took a four-hour bus ride to the village on the other side of
6:16 am
london. during that time the bus could have reached the olympics in greece. the wayward bus is raising questions about how easy it will be for athletes to try to get around the venues during the games. this is when you have an international event like this it jams up the city. i remember being in atlanta, it was rough. >> i bet. you'll get your best seat here. >> we've got it covered. 6:17. president barack obama and the first lady, they took in the u.s. men's basketball team's final tune-up before they head to london. >> they became the focus of the crowd when they ended up on the kiss cam. look at this. look at the daughter giving a nudge. the president delivered. it was the second time they were on the cam. the first time there was no kiss. only a little smile. >> gave her two kisses on the lips and the forehead. >> the first one got a few boos from the crowd but he got the
6:17 am
second chance and the nudge from his daughter malia. >> not as romantic -- do it. there it is. >> most teens like oh, man. >> not as romantic as a night with yany. pretty good deal. >> you speak from experience. pure experience. >> i like a little kenny gee myself. another sound, the fog horn blowing in san francisco. we've got a full deck of clouds. you can see what i've been describing. easier to describe what is happening. the fog is settling to the surface. what's happening is we still have the pretty strong wind. we have flight delays out of sfo. you want to check ahead. even if you are flying later on today likely a ripple effect. elsewhere, good flying conditions. if you are headed to the east
6:18 am
coast make sure you are ready for the heat. temperatures 10 to 15 degrees below their seasonal average. an area of low-pressure just to our north. we're at 60 in sunnyvale, 57 in san francisco and 60 comfortable degrees in san jose. so works out like this. low pressure is going to swing to the south. this will keep the onshore flow in place. for us limited sunshine for the first part of the day and the system slowed down, that's going to keep us in the comfortable range for one more day inland. we warm up rapidly thursday, friday, saturday, getting hot. 50s and 60s by the water. in san francisco, you'll only hit the upper 50s today. the low 70s on the east shore fremont, 77 in livermore. wednesday into thursday the warm-up starts. tomorrow another nice day, 83 by
6:19 am
thursday. then it's hot friday, saturday, sunday, temperatures climbing above seasonal averages. we hold on to the 90s next week. two more days. 6:19. here's mike. >> looking at livermore where it's late for the 70s, down in the 40s, i these 70s are not allowed. we're looking at a slower drive for 580 westbound and building as the valley but no incidents. smooth through dublin and the dublin interchange. 680 moves through walnut creek as well. heading over to love ridge, then a smooth drive into our pittsburgh bay point. in your commute directions. caldecott tunnel no delays, about 55 which we expect heading toward the two bores. 19 minutes off the carquinez

6:21 am
the people usually have the ability to pay all cash. it frees up the equity for more effective, more hue krative investments. >> i guess because he's only worth about 10 billion. needed pocket change. interest rate hikes are not expected soon. the fed expected to keep interest low until at least 2014. facebook is not the favorite on the social media scene. google plus criming to the top with consumer satisfaction. hundreds of millions of users, some people don't like it. facebook, complaints include too many ads, privacy concerns and unexpected changes. google plus does not use traditional advertising. other sights, they were high on the scale as google plus but did
6:22 am
get more likes. >> coming up, the fda could approve a second weight loss drug today. >> a live look outside right now, that is the bay bridge as you can see. some of those low clouds starting to roll in. the hours between 6:00 and 8:00 a.m. thick.
6:23 am
6:24 am
6:25 am
>> 6:25. the fda could decide by today on another prescription weight loss drug. brian mooar is live in washington to tell us more. good morning, brian. >> reporter: the drug, the fda had a chance to approve it a couple of years ago and took a pass. a panel looked at the results of several clinical trials and has found that the risks are outweighed by the benefits. this is a drug that according to the manufacturer can result in a 10% or better weight loss, so somebody does have a weight of around 200 pounds losing 20 pound could be a life saver. in addition there is a benefit for cardiovascular risk and diabetes. one of the down sides, there is a risk of birth defects so this will not be available for pregnant women. also a problem with increased heart rate but they found that also this drug brings down blood
6:26 am
pressure so all in all, the fda panel that makes the recommendations to the full food and drug administration decided to give the thumbs up. the actual approval could come as early as today. >> interesting to see. thank you very much, brian. >> i'm always old school. diet, have a work out. exercise. >> it's cool this morning to go for a run. >> this is the kind of exercise day you want to take advantage of. two more days of temperatures in the 70s, then the 90s return. that makes it all that much easier to but off that run. up to 77 at 4:00 inland. that means 69 degrees bay side and the heat of the day and 64 at the coast, but not all that warm. if you're waking up near the water but there is a warm-up on the way. first here is mike and your drive. >> the south bay drivers, that burst has smoothed out for 101. here for 101 and here for 87 in the 50s. the commute is on and building for the south bay. an easy drive up the peninsula

6:44 am
crowd of 200 people. police say there was more than one person responsible for the shooting. they do have one person in custody who was among the injured. describing him as a person of interest. >> this is a wild scene as well. the u.s. government confirms a navy ship firing on an indian fishing boat off dubai, killing a man on board. this happened monday. the crew of the naval supply ship says they feared a terrorist attack was taking place and they warned the approaching fishing boat several times to turn around and move away. the u.s. ambassador to india calling india's foreign secretary, did that this morning to express regret over the death. >> 6:45. two american tourists kidnapped in egypt are free. both from boston were released unharmed after negotiations with the tribal leaders. they were kidnapped on friday. the captors demanded the release

6:47 am
conditions but we're starting to see some peeks of sunshine. looks like this will be the case for the mid morning hours, little breaks of sunshine, mostly cloudy. good morning to you. let's talk about the numbers. winds are rather strong in fairfield. out of the west at 14, the winds have relaxed. that fog is settling in so it works like this for today. east-southeast wind will strengthen in sunnyvale. another round of gusty winds, not as strong as yesterday. but they will be strong into the evening like we saw yesterday. 59 degrees in san jose, 58 in livermore. as you can see we have an area of low pressure sitting to our north. it's going to slide to the south as we head throughout this afternoon. for us, that means limited sunshine for the first part of the day but nice, beautiful cool air coming off the pacific. as we head through wednesday, staying comfortable around here. we'll see some of the cool air start to mix out by thursday but only ending up in the low 80s. so 70s today, tomorrow, and low
6:48 am
80s return by thursday. then the 90s quickly move in friday into the weekend. 6:48. here is mike. >> with the volume of traffic we were seeing for 580 it was pretty much a matter of time before something happened. here is an accident involving a big rig and two cars. it's blocking the slow lane. an ambulance has been called. if there are injuries this could add to the time it takes to clear so allow at least five minutes but get out of the house as soon as you can if you head out of livermore and westbound through this area. in the backup i also heard of a possible stalled big rig around grant line road. that might be an issue. that's also in the slow lane. that could relieve some of the pressure through pleasanton west to the dublin interchange. a note for you there. the south bay, the earlier areas, 101 and 87 show the speed in the 30s so how quickly that dropped so. half your speed means twice your travel time. the lower bay shore moves.
6:49 am
no delays for the peninsula, 101 or 280 to san francisco. we'll get a live look at san mateo bridge, highway 92, you can make out the high rise with the low clouds. a smooth drive in both directions and we'll end with the golden gate bridge, the clouds may play more of a factor. back to you. >> thank you, mike. 6:50. more economic tug of war on capitol hill. congress will hear from ben bernanke. >> it's a fact retail sales are down for a third month t jobless rate still stuck above 8%, of course republican mitt romney and his supporters jumping on the opportunity, blaming the president, the president blames congress. >> the problem is we've got a stalemate in washington. >> terrible jobs report last week. we've had continued bad news on manufacturing, we're now looking at the weakest recovery since the great depression. >> a fund-raiser in mississippi

6:51 am
